​Sixth Annual Hunger Walk Goes Virtual

The Monteagle-Sewanee Rotary Club is hosting the sixth annual Hunger Walk as a week-long virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of the Hunger Walk is to raise community awareness about food insecurity on the South Cumberland Plateau and to raise funds to support organizations combating food insecurity in the community.

Anyone may participate. Pick a route, then walk, run, or cycle. Dollars raised go toward the Community Action Committee and Grundy County Food Bank to help the more than 12,000 people in the tri-county area who do not have access to adequate nutritious food.

Between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4, walk, run, or cycle at your chosen location. This year, participants are challenged to log as many miles as they can in a one week period.

Participants can create a fund-raising page to track how much money is raised, and use Endomondo to track the distance, which will be visualized on the website. Go to www.thehungerwalk.com for more information. Donations are also accepted.
